Recall Alert: Pacifica 2017 and 2018

Chrysler Pacifica Recalled to Address Seat Belt Issue

Sep 21, 2017



Nearly 50,000 Chrysler Pacifica vans have been recalled for an issue related to the rear seatbelts.

The voluntary recall affects the 2017 and 2018 model years, with 47,927 minivans affected in the U.S. and another 1,908 in Canada. The issue involves the second-row seat belts with Chrysler saying during testing, an outboard seat belt buckle could become unlatched “when the vehicle is subjected to extreme handling maneuvers.” Yes, it seems a bit strange “extreme handling maneuvers” would be done in a minivan, but crazy things happen out on the road.

The recall only affects Pacifica minivans with the optional eight-passenger seating arrangement and customers will be notified when a fix is available. Until then, the American automaker recommends against using the second-row center seat in conjunction with the second-row positions.

“During testing, it was observed that an outboard seat belt buckle in the second row could become inadvertently unlatched when the vehicle is subjected to extreme handling maneuvers,” FCA said in a statement. “This occurred when the buckle’s release button contacted that of an adjacent occupant’s buckle.”
